Can you confirm this? Heard a story that the kinks refused to hit the stage so bill graham got a crane of some sort and lifted one of their cars in the air and threatened to drop it if they didnt play, thought it was the kinks but not 100 percent sure

This is what the great and powerful Woz had to say about the same:

Comment from E-mail:
I remember waiting for what seemed like forever for the KINKS to come on.The sun was just starting to set and Ray and the boys ran on to the stage. Maybe because of the time of day the music seemed to echo and sound almost magical. Later I found out that the late Bill Graham almost did'nt let the kinks on because they were late. Maybe it was a magical thing. thanx Steve and thanx Bill Graham where-ever you are. RUSS

Woz:
That was the most magical day of all the US Festivals.

Bill Graham had some other dispute with the Kinks, particularly their manager. BG even had a crane ready to move the manager's car out and wouldn't let that manager in the stage area as I recall.

That is some seriously GREAT footage. would have loved to have seen them during that time frame - I only got chance in the low budget and post era. hope this 50th leads to some shows - talking like it might.

Also some hope of a reunion over here, but Dave ... may be the best way to reach out to your bro is not by publicly calling him an asshole
